Mr. Butch Cruz
Manila City, Metro Manila

Dear Mr. Butch Cruz,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Ms. Kim Rosa.
I was also informed by my client Ms. Rosa that you have several obligations that are due
and demandable.
(1) Child Support and Cost of Delivery
Ms. Rosa has been seven (7) months pregnant with your child. We are making a demand
that you pay half of all cost pertaining to the delivery of the child and the support of the child at
the amount of P7,000 per month after delivery and any other cost the law so provides. Art. 194 of
the Family Code states,
Art. 194. Support comprises everything indispensable for sustenance, dwelling, clothing,
medical attendance, education and transportation, in keeping with the financial capacity of
the family.
The education of the person entitled to be supported referred to in the preceding paragraph
shall include his schooling or training for some profession, trade or vocation, even beyond
the age of majority. Transportation shall include expenses in going to and from school, or to
and from place of work.

The support shall be due and demandable as of the date in this letter as provided in Art. 203 of
the Family code, which states: The obligation to give support shall be demandable from the
time the person who has a right to receive the same needs it for maintenance, but it shall not be
paid except from the date of judicial or extra-judicial demand.

We demand that you pay the amount of Twenty One Thousand Pesos (P21,000) as
payment for the last three months you have stayed in my clients apartment before you left. This
obligation was brought about by your agreement with Ms. Rosa that you shall be paying part of
the rental fees. Such agreement shall be considered as a binding contract between you and my
client. As per the Civil Code, Art. 1305 of the Civil Code as, [a] contract is a meeting of minds

to render some service.
(4) Cease and Desist From Harassing
Ms. Rosa has been complaining that you have been harassing her to return the pearl
earrings you have voluntarily given to her. The rights over said property has been transferred to
Ms. Rosa upon her receiving of the thing, hence you have no more right over it. You are
demanded to stop such harassment activities immediately as they are being done in violation of
the law. As provided under Sec 3 (a) and (c) of RA 9262 or otherwise known as Anti-Violence
